If you're going motorcycle riding with a bare head, you might just as well ride in the buff, a group of angry bikers say.
Tonight, they plan to do just that -- well, almost. The bikers want to illustrate their point while protesting the repeal of the state's helmet law for motorcycle riders. The new freedom takes effect today.
About a dozen bikers who think riding without a helmet is foolish plan to ride their bikes throughout the North Shore, Strip District, South Side and Mt. Washington with only their heads fully covered via helmets. The bikers will dress the rest of their bodies in as little clothes as are legal.
"We're mocking the idea that if you don't have a helmet, you might as well ride naked," said David Erdner, 29, of Bakerstown, a finance manager of Northgate Motorcycles in Cranberry, Butler County. "Of all the things on your body, your head is the most important thing to keep protected."
Now that this weather is really starting to suck and it is cold and rainy almost every day, does anyone ride quads or dirt bikes? This is prime weather for some dirt riding. If so where and what do you ride?
